Oh. Haven’t followed cycling in a few years. Did Phil outlive him?
From the way it looks, it seems that he was busy one week and forgot to order male QCs. And on that busy week, his male qc on his lead hose went bad. So he dug out all the unused connectors and made the mess you see above. BUT, little did he know, he should've just used a male qc on one of his end hoses to get the job done. But when you're slammed with work, you don't think, you're in auto pilot just to get the job done
That's funny. That happened to me this week. Macy and I were on our first job for the day. I noticed my high pressure swivel was leaking. It was really getting on my nerves and we were pretty close to the shop. After the job told Macy we're headed back to the shop to replace that swivel. She got really annoyed. She's learning how to be flexible, but it's not coming easy. She looks at the schedule for the day, and gets target fixation. She doesn't see the four other things I have planned in my head that never made it to the printed schedule for the day. It drives her nuts and she actually becomes quite annoying to deal with.When I was a coit chimp I was always at least 2 to 4 hours from help fixing my equipment, as well as a day or three of lost income.
My Mcgiver skills were greatly enhanced during that time in my life.
But that's Jim said my eye for detail is a few notches above most humans and s*** like that would drive me nuts..
My Santa Cruz guys will work with broken lopsided leaky or upside down equipment for weeks or months and not think anything of it but I'll stop mid job and work for an hour to keep from doing so...
